First Lady's been "Brow"sing

Hello Angels,

For me the FLOTUS can almost do no wrong fashion wise.  When certain fashion experts would discuss her looks there were only minor suggestions.  All of them were in an effort to soften her look just a little.  Well this month's essence just arrived at my doorstep.  I would have to say that The First Lady scores a ten.
Here's the cover courtesy of Essence magazine:

What did she do differently?  Well for one her hair is lighter.  That gives her a glow for the season.  But the biggest thing that was done is that her eyebrows are fuller.  It gives her a softer and younger look.  Eyebrow guru Damone Roberts suggested this ages ago.  Someone listened and she looks better than ever.

Here is an earlier pic that you can use for comparison (courtesy of Elle.com)

This look is high fashion and the thinner brow fits the criteria.  In the first picture the FLOTUS looks fresh, fashionable and FIERCE.  The fuller eyebrows are also very on trend.  Some of your favorite celebrities have been doing the same.  When well shaped a fuller eyebrow can easily take a few years off of you. Voila instant face lift.

Are you a thick or thin eyebrow person? Are you for or against growing them out? Let us know what you think?  

Until next time Angels,
Happy Browzing!!!! LOL

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

Hi Angels, 

On the 13th of this month Urban Decay introduced a new member to their Perversion line.  It is Perversion Mascara. The brand says this mascara will give you the darkest lashes out there.

It boasts a creamy formula that is lump free.  Even after applying another coat to go out after work.  This mascara also had ingredients that will help protect and grow your lashes over time.  

Here is a look at the mascara courtesy of UrbanDecay.com:


Urban decay is also sending a free deluxe sample of their lash primer called Subversion when you order the mascara on their website.
I have to say I am curious.  I am currently in the market for a great mascara.  And since this mascara will give you Bigger, Blacker, Badder lashes, it might be worth trying it out. All of that for $22.00.   Like all other women I just want to look like I am wearing false lashes when I wear mascara.  Is that too much to ask for?  Lol

So Angels, anyone interested in a Bigger, Badder, Blacker lash?  Did you already purchase the mascara?  If so, what did you think? Let us know what your thought are.  The mascara can be purchased at Urban Decay.com for now until it is at a counter and store near you.  

Until next time Angels

LA Girl's Splurge or Steal

Hi Angels,

Social media has been abuzz about LA Girl's Glazed Lip paint.  The company touts it as a product with the appearance of a lipstick that has the ease and glossy finish of a lipgloss. The company is cruelty free so no testing on animals.  

Have we heard this before?  Have you heard of the brand OCC? AKA Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.  You don't believe me ask LAgirl. Here is a pic courtesy of the brand:


The brand says they are a cheaper alternative with the same quality.  Here are some swatches courtesy of LAgirl:

 
If that is not enough to impress you.  Here is another prestige brand selling the same product at an even higher price point of $21. It is Too Faced's Melted.  This is a liquified long wearing lipstick.  This pic is courtesy of Sephora.


I for one love a bargain.  I especially love it when the quality is just as good as the higher priced brand.  At this price point it is worth giving a try.  

So what do we think Angels? Are you going to make a beeline for your neighborhood drugstore?  If you've tried the LAgirl lip paint, let us know what you think.  

Until next time Angels

Update Benefit They're Real Push Up Gel Liner

Hi Angels,

I am back with an update on the Benefit They're Real Push Up Gel Liner.  I was able to order it early and receive it two days later courtesy of Sephora.  The liner shares its name with Benefit's mascara which is currently the top selling mascara of Prestige Brands.

So what do I think??? Why,thank you for asking. This beauty is exactly what Benefit says it is.  It is a matte black waterproof gel in in a click to dispense pen.  Before I go on let's take a look at these pics courtesy of us:

Here is the pen:

Here is the applicator tip:

After a full click apply to your eyes quickly.  This is a waterproof matte gel so it is dryer than your liquid liner.   You may have to use more than one swipe/pass for even distribution.  

Here is our final pic after after a hot shower!  Lol.  That's right we go the extra      mile for our readers. 

So what do we think?  It is matte and black.  It also lasts but is easily removed with waterproof eye makeup remover.  You can easily achieve a thick or thin line by positioning the tip.  You need to have a steady hand because depositing too much product can lead to clumps.  Don't click the bottom more than necessary or you'll have a mess.

All in all this is a revolutionary product.  Although the gel can be a little smoother,  it delivers whatever shape of line you set out to draw. This beauty will be available on the 27th of June at your local Sephora, Ulta and anywhere else that sells Benefit.

So what do we think Angels?  Are you going to buy this liner?  Or is this liner a pass?  Let us know what you think.

Until next time Angels,

MAC Sharon Osbourne Collection

Hi Angels,

On the twelfth of June MAC released the Osbourne collection in stores.  I reviewed Kelly's collection earlier.  Now I am back with Sharon Osbourne's half of the collection. 

I was fortunate enough to stop by the mall on the release date.  Here is a picture of Sharon's collection :

The lipliner is missing because I had it in my hands.  LOL.  Unlike Kelly's collection, Sharon's is warmer and can be worn by almost anyone.  It consists of four patent polishes (all red packaging and signed) in the upper left hand and right hand corner. The are shiny lippolishes with great staying power. The colors are innocent(glossy taupe),patent pink(neutral pink),french kiss(coffee brown)and ruby(a dark plummy red).  

The next row are the lipglasses.  From left to right is pussywillow (creamy nude with high shine) and bijou(muted pink).  

In between the lipglasses is the eyeshadow quad called Duchess.  From too left to right Femme Fatale(golden brown satin), Embark(Dark reddish brown matte),Sexy Eyes (soft warm bronze), Sweet Eyes(light golden nude) .While it is a nice warm palette, I passed.  If you are looking for one, it is a must buy.

Sharon's collection also contains a mineralize Skinfinish and a blush.  The MSF is called Refresh(light summer peach with a light golden tan) and Peaches and Cream(a mid tone rose with a satin finish).

The eye pencil is Bountiful Brown(a bronzed brown).  It is part of the permanent collection.  The lip pencil which I purchased is cranberry( it is a soft yellow pink).  

The last part of the collection are the special edition brushes.  They are the 275se on the left(medium angle shading) and the 167se (face blender).  

The collection is very popular and availability changes everyday.  You may purchase these items at your favorite MAC counter, maccosmetics.com, Nordstrom, Macy's,  Dillards's and Bloomingdales.

So Angels, have we purchased anything from this collection? What are your thoughts?  Let us know...

Until next time Angels,

Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner

Hi Angels,

The web and Instagram have been abuzz the past few weeks about Benefit's new product.  It's their gel liner in a pen form. They say it's revolutionary because it's a gel and the color/formula is matte black.  The special tip is supposed to enable the user to easily line your eyes close to the lash.

Here is a pic courtesy of Benefit and Instagram:
 
I was fortunate to order this beauty from HSN and Sephora before it is released at the end if the month.  Ulta is having a preview event today. Some were able to get them at a Benefit event even before that. I will review it as soon as I get it.

So Angels, has anyone received the new liner already?  What do you think?  Are you thinking of getting it?  Let us know.

Until next time Angels,

MAC LORDE Collection

Hi Angels,
The people at MAC are BUSY!  Yesterday they launched their LORDE mini collection.  It is inspired by the funky New Zealand born Grammy award winning musician.  The collection consists of a lipstick named after the artists album and a Pentulmate eyeliner. The look that was debuted at this past Grammys was a mixture of Cyber and Rebel lipstick.  Voila now you have Pure Heroine. Take a look at the promo pic courtesy of Maccosmetics.com:

The look is simple, clean but vampy.  The lipstick is an amplified finish so it won't be dry on the lips. Both items are available at Maccosmetics.com for $16.00 and $19.50. Pro discount does not apply to the lipstick.  

So what do we think Angels?  Are we going to indulge in Pure Heroine?  Let us know what you decide.

Until next time
